Show me the money!

The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans has paired up with  Healthy Wage for a 3 month weight loss challenge that gives the winning team the chance to win $10,000.  They offered the Shrinking Jeans 2 team spots to participate.  Shrinking Jeans has filled one team with staff members and held a draw of anyone who was interested in joining to fill the other team.  I threw my name in the hat and I got picked!

What is Healthy Wage?

Healthy Wage designs and organizes weight loss challenges and contests in which participants can win money for losing weight. They’ve been featured in the NY Times, Time magazine, Fox News, ABC News, The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, and countless other media outlets. Healthy Wage is sponsored by corporate and government clients who have a stake in wellness, healthcare costs, and disease prevention.
Healthy Wage hosts several kinds of weight loss challenges including the Matchup Challenge (which is what we’re doing) with $18,000 in prizes for the top three teams. Yes, you read that right! The Grand Prize for the top losing team is $10,oo0! So far, Healthy Wage has given out over $430,000 in prize money and more than 866,000 pounds have been lost. AMAZING!!
So for the next 3 months I'll be doing my best to do my team proud by losing weight and getting ever closer to being the healthiest I can be.  And just maybe I can win some cash too.
